    Default Test/review of GTF TR16340 2800mAh (White)

    GTF TR16340 2800mAh (White)



    Official specifications:
    • 100% brand new GTL123A 3.7V 2800mAh rechargeable batteries
    • Capacity: 2800mAh
    • Voltage: 3.7V
    • Chemistry: Li-ion
    • Recharge: up to 1000 cycles




    The latest scam in high capacity 16340 batteries.










    They are a bit below rated capacity, actual capacity is 250mAh to 300mAh at low load. they do not support moderate or higher loads.



    They do not contain energy enough to get warm.















    Conclusion

    These cells may be cheap, but compare to what you get they are way to expensive. Any decent cell will have about double capacity and handle higher load much better.
    I will rate them as bad



    Notes and links

    How is the test done and how to read the charts
    How is a protected LiIon battery constructed
    More about button top and flat top batteries
    Comparison to other LiIon batteries
    My website with battery and charger information: lygte-info.
    More than 1000 reviews of batteries, charges and other stuff.
    Compare 18650 LiIon batteries or smaller (RCR123, 16340, 14500, 10450) LiIon batteries.

    2800 mah rated, 285 mah tested.

    Obviously they misplaced a decimal point.

    Maybe the reason that capacity was not measured properly is the fact, that testing equipment does not follows specifications defined by battery manufacturer, as it was in case with 2700mAh AA batteries?
